If you like to play golf games on any console, or you like to golf and want a game that is realistic this is the game for you. When using both the Wii Motion Plus and the Wii Motion Board this is the closest thing to actually playing a round of 18. The progressive caddy feature is amazing. It's just like real life where you have to be a better golfer in order to have a better caddy. All in all I could play this game for months straight and never get bored. Highly recommended.

This is a good golf game with very smooth gameplay. The game offers several modes of play ranging from super easy to pretty realistic and difficult. The easiest mode eliminates the possibility of a mis-hit or an unwanted hook or slice. Essentially, if you hit the ball, it goes far and straight. As you increase the difficulty, the way you swing your controller has a greater and greater influence on how your ball flies. I was not able to find where the stats of a created golfer can be increased in a versus mode. I found this to be the greatest disadvantage of the game. My roommate and I wanted to play against each other with created golfers, which we were able to do. But during our head-to-head matches there were virtually no rewards for the low scores we posted.
This seems like a great game, but I would love to be able to use a standard (x-box like) controller. Players should have the option of wii remote or standard controller. It would have made game play a lot more fun. Still a very good game, but could have been more fun!
